Harlan Coben has risen to the top of bestseller lists worldwide, attracting voracious audiences for his peerless novels of domestic suspense as well as those featuring his fan-favorite sports agent, Myron Bolitar. Now in Live Wire, he offers a knock-your-socks-off novel that will electrify all his fans: Myron's family takes center stage. Myron Bolitar has always dreamed about the voluptuous femme fatale walking into his office and asking for help. The woman standing in his doorway has killer curves all right: She's eight months pregnant, which kind of ruins the fantasy. Former tennis star Suzze T and her rock star husband, Lex, are both clients, and over the years Myron has negotiated his share of contracts for the power pair. But now Lex has disappeared and a very pregnant Suzze is in tears, fearing the online rumors questioning the baby's paternity have driven away the man she swears is the child's father. For Myron, questions of fatherhood couldn't hit closer to home, as his dad, Al, clings to life; the brother who abandoned them all years ago is in trouble; and Myron's teenage nephew needs an authority figure. Myron is soon forced to confront deep secrets in Suzze's past; his family's mortality - and before Live Wire is over, his own.

"Harlan Coben continues the adventures of Myron Bolitar, failed basketball star turned agent and occasional adventurer. The tenth Bolitar novel does a deep dive into the character's past through his search for his long-lost brother and the brother's strung-out wife. Steven Weber deftly handles the narration, especially in his portrayals of the novel's kooky characters, with their varied backgrounds, diverse accents, and unusual voices. One such character is the monstrous former lady wrestler. Weber also keeps the book moving through the rare slow passages, such as Coben's attempts to be cute when describing twin Asian lovers Mee and Yu. M.S. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
